Fostering Grit in the Classroom

What is grit, and why should we teach it? Author Grant Overstake leads teachers through an inspiring, resource-rich professional development opportunity on this essential 21st Century Learning Skill, with the latest research by Angela Lee Duckworth and others.

Artist: Grant Overstake

"[T]he concepts of self-control, delayed gratification and perseverance are more important now than ever before. Today's youth deserve adults in their lives who will not only teach them these concepts but will model these skills in their daily lives. Mr. Overstake does an amazing job of introducing "Grit" to both students and staff alike. I highly recommend his program to each and every school and staff."
